New Study Reveals Coconut Oil Is Far Better Than Your Toothpaste
Coconut oil has been known to support the immune system, buffer metabolic and dietary acids, support organ health – all benefits that also translate to oral health.
Swishing coconut oil around in your mouth daily, a technique called oil pulling, also helps to remove acids from the mouth and body. Incorporating these health benefits to your daily routine will lead to healthier teeth and gums, fresher breath, and will decrease toxic acidic side-effects of commercial toothpastes.
Coconut oil toothpaste is easy and inexpensive to make. It only requires a few ingredients to make enough for several uses.
Here’s the step-by-step guide in making your own coconut oil toothpaste.
- Prepare and clean a small jar with a tight lid. A baby food jar or small Mason jar will do.
- Mix 1 part Coconut Oil with 1 part Baking Soda.
- Add 3-5 drops of Sweet Orange, Peppermint, or other food-grade essential oils to flavor.
- Allow your paste to cool and set.
Simply apply the paste on your toothbrush and brush your teeth. Brushing with coconut oil helps remove the toxins from the mouth to the body.
